There is something about the chemistry, about the language and communication of the mind and soul, which brings people together or drives them apart. It is this chemistry between people that I would blame for.....or, rather, a change in the chemistry between people that I would blame for separation and divorce.
I am surprised that Napoleon Hill was not given the Noble Prize, but then again there is no category in the Noble Prizes into which his work fits. Perhaps, on that point, I would suggest there should be another category created by the Trustees of the Noble Foundation. The Increasing of Human Understanding.
Napoleon Hill interviewed 500 of the most successful people in America in the 1920s, and from those interviews he wrote many articles, published in his Hill's Success Magazine. But a few people made a huge impression on him, viz Andrew Carnegie, Firestone, Henry Ford, Dr.Alexander Graham Bell, and Dr. Thomas Alva Edison. And yes, Mr Edwin Barnes, who said it could not be done, that is to say, the writing of a blueprint for success based on the interviews with successful people.
Napoleon Hill turned that into a questions: Who said it could not be done? and went on to publish his Think and Grow Rich, a book that sells well throughout the world, in many languages, in number just after the sales of the Bible, Koran and Bhagavad-Gita and other religious masterpieces.
In his research, Napoleon Hill says that the first three years of a marriage often have petty squabbles and friction, but the love that exists between the two will carry it through. The next fifteen years are those in which the lucky couple start to look alike in their eye movements and thinking, influencing their value judgements and expressions, meaning the happy couple have achieved understanding of one another, and a state of harmony exists between them that we attribute to the magic of chemistry.
A state of harmony, an instinctive understanding, an automatic understanding of mutual goals. It is like both have the same road-map, or at least complementing road maps.
Those for whom a partnership does not work, it seems are rather like a horse-drawn carriage where the horses want to pull in differing directions. Where it is not possible to bring harmony of direction, abandonment of the journey becomes the alternative. Such is what happens in business partnerships as well, and in politics as well.
A question that may help bring harmony back is : What was the road map that brought the partners together in the first place? Can it be modified and restored? If the answer is Yes, then hope still remains for reunion and success.

It seems a little bit of tweaking and changes in policy may improve the situation in Europe dramatically, at least I believe so.
The high rate of unemployment amongst the under-25s and the debate about the Retirement age surely throws up possibilities of correction and growth in the right segments.
People like to retire early, not work into their old age! People like to work a slightly shorter week, so they can enjoy some leisure time enjoying the sunshine, pottering around town, meeting friends, playing cards, taking youngsters to all the exciting places, and so on. That is the boon of the Digital age, where people shouldn't have to work long hours. Each new generation should have more leisure time, and a better standard of living. Why not?
And the young people, why should they be unemployed? If there is work to be done, they should do it instead of the older people. Does it not make sense? It would reduce unemployment amongst the young people, who are the strength of this generation. What a relief it would bring.
If more young people are facilitated into the jobs market, they will become empowered to do all the traditional jobs such as plumbing, shop-keeping, driving, cooking and catering, house-building, architecture, book-keeping, teaching, nursing, pharmacology, dentistry, librarianship, well you can add a few names as well.
As the young people work, the economy will boom, able to support the people who need to retire and draw a pension. It will seem fair if people who have worked hard for so many years can retire at a reasonable age and enjoy a future of a leisurely life, whilst the young can convert all their talents and energy into wealth for their nations, by work, enterprise and innovation.
Europe can endeavour to put young people into traditional occupations, as well as nurturing talents for the digital economy. Maybe the lucky ones will help create some star performers like Facebook or Pulse or Tumblr, and those can be developed as hobbies by the rest of us I guess.
Now I hope the legislators and labour department superemos can sit down and formulate some ideas that will turn all that latent energy into wealth and growth for Europe.

The Last Great Prophet, a review by Thomas Sugrue
It seems there are people regularly interested in the review of the above-name. This, according to
a reprint of the original 1937 edition of Think and Grow Rich (with a foreward by Tom Butler-Bowden),
appeared in the Herlad Tribune, in the 1930s.
The book itself is entitled Mohammed, a biography, by Essad Bey, who has a few books to his credit,
The above-mentioned biography and the previously mentioned review by Thomas Surgrue, have earned their names in recent history, I believe.
All religionists are dreamers, who have believed and pursued a dream, as did Mohammed, as did Christ, as did the Buddha. Their distinguishing characteristic was persistence, a characteristic that is the top quality necessary for any kind of success, followed by a purpose, a plan....and action.
All these revered figures had one more distinguishing feature in addition to a message of God : a message of love, preaching God's love for humanity and the unifying fact of humanity : love and honour for all, as brothers and sisters in humanity.
Today, I send my message of peace and love to the people of Oklahoma, Iowa, Arkansas, Missiouri, and the other states who have seen devastation at the hands of Nature.
When I think of the twisters and tornadoes (now heading for Nebraska and Texas) I imagine Christ's command : Winds, be thee still.
Likewise, we should follow in the footsteps of Jesus, and say : Winds, be thee still.

Saturday 18th May was start of the Romford Stake Conference of the Preisthood Leadership and it was very fully attended both days, including a full turnout on Sunday morning.
One of the speakers referred to Doctrine and Covenants 2, which tells of the 116 pages of the manuscript which came to be lost. "As a Bishop, have you ever felt you have done something that has completely 'blown it'? (like the lost 116 pages?). This was President Bleakley of the Romford Ward, who is now leaving to go and look after the Southend Ward. He talked about Administering v. Exercising the Priesthood. Reference was made to D&C 5:16, Moroni Ch 10: 8-17. I personally admire President Bleakley, who always champions exercising the priesthood, and is a very capable Bishop.
His wife, Sister Bleakley, who has three children, also told us as to why she is a Mormon.
"Why am I a Mormon? It is because I was born in a household where both parents and grandparents were Mormons - I was born in the Church? That's part of the reason. But because I know our Saviour lives, I have chosen to be a Mormon."
Sister Bleakley grew up in Leeds, and there one day she saw a car with the registration LDS 4 EVA. To her this was of course our Church for ever, although to the car owner it was most probably Leeds for ever.
One of the missionaries, Elder Nicols, has just returned from Greece. He had a sunny testimony where he was at the Hills of Mars near the Acropolis, where the Saviour stood and prophesied in olden times.
We are here that we might have joy. Heavenly Father likes us to be joyful."
Brother Nicols is of the persuasion that we should continue to renew our covenants with Heavenly Father.
It may sound strange, but in Greece Yes is Na. (And the good news is that there has been a lot of repair
to the Greek economy, and it seems normality is fast returning to that golden land).
Sister Lydia Jacobs is a new convert, who met two missionaries is Southend. She was offered the Book of Mormon - what is this? she said. It talks about a Prophet (Joseph Smith) who lived to transcribe this book and make it available to the world. But she had heard that no one who sees the Father lives, yet two men who saw the Heavenly Father did live, to glorify His name. Lydia was baptised recently, after meeting President Jordan. She sounded like a transformation had taken place in her life. She is very joyful now. It is refreshing to know that should we see God, in our hearts, we would still live on, to glorify His name through sharing His message.
President Jordan especially travelled over to be at this testimony.
His wife, Sister Jordan, spoke about the success of the recent 'I'm a Mormon' campaign. People have even contacted the Church to enquire about tickets to the show, The Mormons are Coming.
There are Mormons all over London. Two missionaries near the Prince of Wales Theatre were asked for their autographs. "What do you actually do?" some missionaries were asked on a bus.
"Is that a real Book of Mormon?" others have asked, seeing a copy of the beautiful blue pocket size softcover volume, which is available for the asking to those who would read it and discover for the themselves the veracity of the message.
There is a special hotline to President Jordan between 9.30 and 10.30 pm each night, and missionaries phone in to tell him about the miracles that particular day. It is an even busier time as there is ever-growing curiousity about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
Sister Bonnel Lawal spoke about the consequences of breaking God commandments, signs of which are to be seen everywhere and something we should guard ourselves against, despite the struggles to make ends meet and endeavour to buy the first house.
President David Barter, the Stake President, summed up his testimony in two golden words : Service sanctifies.
To all the above, in the name of our Saviour, whose message lives through the faithful congregations, I say Amen.

The Internet has created so many millionaires and billionaires, and left so many people un or underemployed.
The Internet has brought rapid progress. I don't have to visit the library, I can read so much online. Saves on time and bus-fare.
By the same token, it has reduced the High Street to empty shops.
When the Internet first started to pick up, it was a novel experience. Around the same time, they brought in the 7 day a week shopping experience, with shops being open on Sundays as well. But my observation is that after about 8 or 9 months, some shops started to close, people started to lose their jobs.
Let's make it cheaper, deliver it faster, has become the way of doing business successfully in the Internet age. Now, if someone has an item that everybody would buy, all they have to do is set up a shop, an online presence, and customers come flooding in. Cheaper books online mean bookshops are facing closure, so many free books on a £79 Kindle means people won't buy books nor go to libraries.
Can you just imagine how many jobs will be lost? The whole human experience of going to shops may disappear in some sectors, sad to imagine.
The successful online shops will make their proprietors millionaires, but so many people will be left without jobs.
The new technology is an empowering technology, freeing people from the drudgery of repetitive tasks, so they can have more free time or rather not-too-busy time but still earning a living. The new tech is a gift from God for the progress of mankind. The Internet millionaires and billionaires perhaps will one day pay heed to the idea that being so empowered, they have the gift to gift it to other people, just like Tim Berners-Lee did with his world wide web. Let everybody have a job, and be eating, drinking, reading books, watching movies, listening to more music, enjoying life, but still earning their living.
That would be mankind's dream come true, the age we have all been praying for, on a nice sunny day to put the sporting shoes and sports shirt, and go for a stroll, secure that the world is a good place, and God has given the world the bounty to share and let everybody enjoy.

The markets became jittery from the word go today, overnight in Asia, followed by Europe, and starting off on that footing in the U.S. The main concern seemed to be the Greek situation, and it seems Germany and the Eurozone are now quite prepared to accept a Greek exit, although no nation would like that, and certainly it would not be beneficial at all for Greece.
Perhaps a change of mind set is the remedy in Europe, to dwell on the positive and broadcast what is being done to restore stability and growth, rather than talk about the future as if it is a foregone acceptance that the future will not be so rosy. Such is the illusion and not the reality. No intelligent population is going to stop innovating and adadpting to the new challenges and opportunities availalbe. The governments job is to ensure a secure, stable environment and empower people with licences to start work and production; and the banks to provide the capital to empower people in their dealings.
Government printed notes and minted coins are the legal tender, the accepted IOUs, that all nations have to issue in proportion to their resources, their living standards, and the size of the population. I believe Basel is where they keep the books on the printing and issuance of all national currencies, and those books are constantly updated and scrutinized.
Greece has received some very sizeable bailouts, and of course Mr Antonios Samaras is deserving of sympathy when he says his nation is in a Great Depression. Now is the time for him to show his leadership and pull Greece out of that situation. Under the aegis of the ECB and European Union, his nation has received a lot of help. Similarly with Spain. They have received help of funds recently, so it is alarming to see the strikes and demonstrations in Madrid and Barcelona, which have done little good internationally, pushing up the cost of borrowing for Spain. The leaders and people of these two great nations must restore faith in their economies, and gently guide their people to a path of growth and happiness. Austerity must never be so severe that it is unacceptable, and the wealthier European nations must show their sympathy and accept this fact.
Once all nations are aligned to keeping the Euro in existence and through this maturing phase for what is a relatively new currency, all nations will be able to enjoy the fruits such unification will bring. The Euro is the Mother Currency of 17 European nations, and all these nations must be aligned in favour of it and building its strength. Quite soon, I believe things will turn in favour of the Euro. If the margins are adjusted for the Greek and Spainish Bonds, then favourable results will follow there also. I hope all nations can afford to be generous to these sister nations, these flowers of the same bouquet.

Recently, the unseasonal torrential rains across England and the east coast of U.S., as well as the heavy floods in Russia and Assam and mudslides and landslides in various parts of the world, suggest that the eco-system has been disturbed to an extent that the global warming, change of current streams and so on are impacting everywhere. No country seems immune.
The recent forest fires in Colorado in the U.S. suggest that forests have not yet been thinned, where there ought to be space between adjoining trees so that when a forest fire starts, it can be contained. Trees which are so densely close leave no choice but for the fire to spread on. There at least the training and deployment of more lumber jacks could be the appropriate action. It is a highly skilled job, taking a certain type of natural intelligence and co-ordination to do it safely. More people ought to be trained for this job, even in the Mediterranean countries, so the dreaded fires you read about during each summer could be avoided. If this task of "forest thinning" could be carried out before the hot summers, so much wealth of the forests could be safeguarded and preserved.
There is so much need for furniture in African countries like Kenya, so the wood can be utilised for that purpose. Jobs could be created in furniture making in Africa, where factories could be set up. The former colonial masters of such countries which could be helped could perhaps give a helping hand in such initiatives.
A world growth will happen with catering for the young and growing populations of the developing countries. They have the human capital, and young age groups, who need housing, schools, dispensaries, hospitals, roads, libraries, more electiricity to supply the demand which would be there. Eventually, they may be the ones working in the mature economies with aging populations. The world is in that sense one big family of God, whose joy it would be I believe if we all help each other and give a helping hand to spur further growth in the developing world. Western know-how, capital, large-scale implementation and management of work creation will help to harvest the wealth which exists in the world, and bring prosperity to more and more. If all this can happen in the midst of Peace, the benefits will be sooner for all the world.
